Depends what your goals are really. If its to make a quick buck then no. Keep your money and invest in something more secure.

If you want to put your PC knowledge to use making a little extra money or want to invest in cryptocurrency futures then yes, it makes sense. There might be other reasons too, but those are the main ones I keep thinking about. I also want to see long-term where cryptocurrency goes and I hope... hope that there's some real future here. I like the concept of a currency that is 100% owned and controlled by the people. Its just cool IMO.

Yeah... I mean, I do pretty well buying and selling stuff.. And, my primary goal is to make money, for sure. However, I do want to get involved in mining, I mean, I didn't just buy $2400 worth of video cards ((4) 290x) just for BF4.. Err, or did I?! ;c)

Perhaps the move is to buy (2) rigs, instead of all the rigs, and keep some cash around for other moves that might come my way... Damn, it's hard to make a decision like this when you're an all or nothing kind of guy like myself.

I definitely agree with you on the future of crypto, and decentralized money, etc, as well.

Right.. Well, did you buy new, or even inflated pricing?

Didn't do anything for the 290x. I think something is seriously flawed. I can lower/take out TC, core clock, mem clock, intensity, etc and the 290x continues to say it's outputting 950Kh/s to 1Mh/s. At the same time it's not accepting a single share nor is it rejecting it.

It's not the drivers or the card because it works fine on cgminer with scrypt/keccak.

The 290 at least connects and registers so I think there is hope to fine tune it but I'm honestly not even worried about it until I can get the 290x up.


Okay so apparently I was missing the --nscrypt flag for my 290x so that's where those specific issues were coming from. I still can't get the cards to actually do much. Just pretty much HW errors adding up is all I see.

This is what I'm currently trying to use with the 290x...
Code:
./vertminer --nscrypt -o stratum+tcp://east1.us.stratum.dedicatedpool.com:3367 -u 0ut1awed.1 -p x -d 0  -v 1 -w 256 -I 18 -g 1 --lookup-gap 2 --thread-concurrency 24000 --gpu-memclock 1250 --gpu-engine 900 --gpu-powertune 10

It seems extremely conservative from what I have researched and still nothing but HW errors!!??

Use that miner and follow his guide and you should see a big diff. I gained about 30 kh on each card and finally got 0 HW errors. I use 270's as he does so was easy copy pasta but you will just have to mess around with thread concurrency.

All of that is based off of windows though. I'm on linux. I guess I could try and pull some stuff out of it.

Not to mention getting maximum tweaking isn't really possible to do when I can't get very basic flags to run.

Outlawed, try dropping your intensity to 12 or 13 and see if the HW errors go away.

or give up on mining with it and come fold for Full Auto! we need a 290X. Should you take me up on my offer, my team will do everything in its power to make sure you're folding like a bus: BUS 62 baby! (Click to show)

Clevermining is a multipool. It is consistently the best performing one, although it hasn't been around very long. What they and others often do is pounce on weak coins and mine them to oblivion before the difficulty can adjust. Once it adjust, they move on like fat and happy locust to the next field. Many of the weaker coins with low volumes of dedicated miners can be strip mined in short order. They don't have the community to mine the difficulty back down in a timely fashion and this can cripple or kill weaker currencies.

Until currencies come out with faster adjustment rates, multipools will feast until there is nothing left to eat. If that happens before enough coins come out with this feature, there is famine. If that happens, exodus.

If you believe that consolidation is coming, don't know what coins other than bitcoin or litecoin will be standing, and/or that many of these speculative coins don't belong here, multipools may be for you. They eat everything and turn it into bitcoins. Also if you don't have time to trade timely and research, multipools may be your thing. They allow for decent returns with little more investment than the time and cost it takes to build your miner.

What's going on with Auroracoin? I have tried mining it but the pools can go 24, 48 hours without finding a block. (And this is with estimated block finding at 1 every 15 minutes. I even saw 1 pool that had gone 80+ hours without finding a block.

TBH with that much premine... there simply aren't that many blocks remaining to be found in the first place... so the odds of finding one are significantly diminished. Good for value short-term probably, but very bad from a mining standpoint. The best recommendation I would have is to simply find the pool with the most hashrate... and mine there and be patient.

I missed the boat with that coin - figured the premine would completely kill it out of the gate... shows what I know! redface.gif
